Errr...that is a pain killer. If it wasn't prescribed to you, don't take it!!!!!!I don't know much about the drug but I have a presentation coming up in school. I found some oxycodone in the medicine cabinet and I'm wondering if it will help me out if I took a little before I had to do it.
I'm on 150mg of zoloft every day.
Thanks as always
I honestly don't see how taking a small dosage before a presentation would harm me. I am going to a psychiatrist at the end of the month but I need to get through this presentation somehow which is next week. It's a matter of passing the course or failing it.Errr...that is a pain killer. If it wasn't prescribed to you, don't take it!!!!!!
How many times do you have to take it before you can experience the beneficial effects?Have you taken it before? Because if you haven't I'll tell you what you will most likely experience.
If you haven't taken it before you will most likely get really hot, possibly even sweat. And you will also get very nauseous. I think it would be detrimental to take it before a presentation if you haven't had it before, it won't make you feel better the first time you take it.
P.S. I've taken it before along with other stronger ones.
It depends...a couple of times normally, even then you still may get sick and more likely than not will get pretty hot from it.How many times do you have to take it before you can experience the beneficial effects?
I don't think I'd say "easily". I'd say possible, so certainly be aware of the risk. My brother has used tramadol + methadone together as needed when his back goes out every once in a while along with the SSRI he takes daily for his OCD. He's still alive. His GP is fully aware of all the meds he takes (since his GP is the guy who wrote all these scripts most of the time), so apparently his doc deems this combination to be reasonably safe. I should note that he's not taking huge amounts of any of them. His Lexapro dose is quite ordinary; actually lower than many with OCD would be taking. And his opioid intake is also in the ordinary range -- not in the sky high range you can find with chronic pain patients who in some cases take more methadone than heroin addicts.Actually come to think of it, a few opiates/opioids are serotonin reuptake inhibitors themselves. So be careful as mixing serotonin-boosting drugs can easily lead to serotonin syndrome which can potentially be fatal. These include:
- Dextromethorphan (DXM) [yes, it's an opiate/opioid-derivative] - Meperidine/Pethidine (Demerol) - Methadone (Dolophine, Methadose) - Propoxyphene (Darvon) - Tramadol (Ultram, Tramacet)
The original poster can't really ask their doc given that they are illegally using Oxy they found, or at the very least not using it for it's prescribed use if it actually is their own. I can't imagine any doctor who'd prescribe such a drug to deal with the anxiety of giving a presentation.Finding what dose is right for you is the job of a doctor and not yourself.
One would likely have to be loaded with alcohol or other CNS depressants for 10 mg to kill them. As I recall, the FDA label for OxyContin in big bold print at the top warns not to use 40 & 80 mg tablets in anyone who isn't already used to opioids due to the risk of death. And, of course, they warn not to break or chew OC tablets.As little as 10mgs chewed Oxycontin has been known to kill a select few ppl. Higher doseages like 80mgs chewed would kill most of the ppl on this board.
That's a lot.Take this from someone who's prescribed the equivalent of 149.33mgs of Oxycodone a day. (don't anyone actually try to take that high without a strong tolerance of narcotics and a doctors supervision)
